It’s no secret that the Sea of Cortez is a veritable treasure trove of marine life. Visitors clamour to experience it for themselves and now they can spend both their days and nights on the high seas with a selection of new customized cruises. Diving aficionados might want to enjoy select five-day diving cruises through the Sea of Cortez on the M/V Valentina with Fun Baja. The recently updated 38 metre ship sleeps up to twenty guests throughout 10 well-appointed cabins. Swim different waters each day with stops that include Swanee Reef, Los Islotes with its enclave of curious sea lions, and the Salvatierra Wreck – wreckage site of a local ferry which accidentally sunk to the depths after hitting the Swanee Reef in 1976. Unwind in comfort as each cabin comes with air conditioning and private bathrooms which makes for a relaxing night after an exhilarating day exploring the seas.
Travellers looking to delve deeper into a more relaxing experience can opt for a five-day Wildness + Wellness tour with Lindblad Expeditions. This larger vessel accommodates a maximum of one hundred passengers. Anyone looking to up their SUP game can do so with paddleboard yoga classes and onboard meditation, or a Chill Yoga class. An onboard naturalist and wellness expert are also available for guests.
